Blocking specific email addresses and domains are essential to controlling the amount of junk mail you get in Microsoft Outlook 2013, 2010, or 2007. You can add email addresses and domains to the block list by using the following steps.

FAQ

I have performed these steps but it doesn’t work for me. Why isn’t Outlook blocking the messages?

Open the “Junk E-mail Options” screen and check under the “Safe Senders” tab to ensure the email address isn’t listed there. If an email address you wish to block is listed in your Contacts, uncheck the “Also trust e-mail from my Contacts” box on this screen.
